April IDEA Talk – United Nuclear Scientific
April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT$20.00
Klamath IDEA’s April 5th IDEA Talk will feature the story of Zack Slizewski and his business endeavors with the legendary, Bob Lazar at United Nuclear Scientific. Zack will be highlighting the ups and downs of his time with the business, from responding to a single sentence craigslist ad to becoming co-owner of a business where he started out as a part time technician straight out of college.
Slizewski explains, “None of my professors told me I could be a small business owner. None of my friends were starting their own businesses. There was an expectation that I would be working for someone else, and for the first few years that’s exactly what I did. So how did I do it? How did I go from knowing absolutely nothing about running a business to being an instrumental part of one? What kept me from taking the ‘expected’ path, risking my livelihood on a business that’s been raided twice by the FBI?” He’ll answer these and other interesting questions in March.
Klamath IDEA is a community initiative committed to developing a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem in Klamath County to strengthen existing small businesses and innovators and inspire and support the emergence of new ones. In that effort, entrepreneurial-minded informative talks modeled after TED Talks are held – known as IDEA Talks – to benefit business owners and entrepreneurs.
United Nuclear Scientific was founded in 1998 By Bob Lazar and his wife, Joy White. The company began with assisting national laboratories with design and repair of radiation equipment, among other equally interesting projects. They now devote the bulk of their time and money into obtaining unique & hard-to-find scientific equipment & supplies for sale to learning institutions – as well as the general public. They currently sell a variety of radioactive supplies and almost every element of the periodic table, including their best-seller, uranium ore. as well as a multitude of educational materials for chemistry and physics. Although United Nuclear is not open to the public to browse in person, orders can be placed online through the company website, unitednuclear.com.
“In the last few years, we are welcoming some very interesting entrepreneurs to our region and the folks at United Nuclear are certainly among them. We look forward to Zach sharing the story with other entrepreneurial minded people,” commented Kat Rutledge, Klamath IDEA Director.
The event will take place on Wednesday, April 5th at Brevada Brewhouse from 5:30-8:00 pm. Food and one non-alcoholic drink ticket is included in the $20 per person admission. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for networking and the IDEA Talk will start at 6:15 p.m. Attendance will be limited to 40 and tickets must be purchased in advance at Facebook.com/KlamathIDEA or at KlamathIDEA.org on the calendar page.
